west door of the Church of
All Saints
GV II


Headstone. 1676. Freestone. Shouldered headstone with a round-headed arched
head. The inscription commemorates Matthew Diamond, died 1670. Rustic carving
in relief in the head includes an hourglass, scythe and head. Below the
inscription the words "Don by Robert Diamond, Son of Matthew Diamond ano domi
1676". The attribution is unusual at this date, suggesting a tradition in
which relatives (either professional or amateur masons) made headstones for
members of their family.
